    Marks and Spencer are great for very good value tweed jackets.

    I have 3 from them in the last year, a green donegal, blue with burgundy overcheck, and a mid grey donegal. All of which are Moon fabric, which for £100 per jacket is excellent. Great cuts too.

    They also have Harris Tweed for about £200

    Is there really anything more perfect than herringbone tweed?

    Sugarbutch and TTO are killing this thread!

    I just picked up my new MTM coat by S. Cohen. 2-button, side vents, patch pockets. It's still too bloody warm here to wear it, but any day now...

    I lost my photo account, and with it all of my WAYWRN pics. Otherwise, I would add some up from days of old. Still too hot for tweed. Let me see if I have any pics saved.

    ON EDIT: I do have these....

    It's almost cold enough to get out my Dashing Tweeds 3-piece for the first time... this is all really making me want to do it! Good stuff.

    TTO, I lost all of my pics of the Nutter. Still have the suit though. If it gets cold enough this winter, it goes on.

    The first part of next week is predicted to be in the 90's. Tweed weather won't hit SoCal until November, at least, dammit!
